Program History:

Founded in 1996, Hearts & Minds works locally in New York City, nationally and globally through our website - www.change.net - where we promote volunteering and self-help. Our nonpartisan, nonprofit organization inspires, educates and connects millions of people online with the best ways to address major challenges in their lives and society. This includes poverty, the environment, human rights, addictions and other important issues.


This is a most achievable plan to help end extreme global poverty. More than 18 million people die every year from hunger-related causes. Together, we can help end this silent genocide and create a better world for us, as well. Our grassroots public education and advocacy raises support for comprehensive, cost-effective programs. This includes innovative and proven techniques such as free and fair trade, microfinance, and social entrepreneurship. These initiatives already help millions of people lift themselves from poverty.
